REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
Sm: An application has been duly made pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery
Act for an amendment of Article IV of the Supplementary Code of
Fair Competition for the Advertising Metal Sign and Display Manu-
facturing Industry by the Supplementary Code Authority for that
Industry.
The Supplementary Code of Fair Competition for the Advertising
Metal Sign and Display Manufacturing Industry was approved on
April 20, 1934. Article IV, Section 5 provides that:
"Members of the Industry shall be entitled to share the benefits
of the activities of the Supplementary Code Authority and to par-
ticipate in the selection of the members thereof by assenting to and
complying with the requirements of this Supplementary Code and
sustaining their reasonable share of the expenses of its administra-
tion. Such reasonable share of the expenses of administration shall
be determined by the Supplementary Code Authority subject to
review by the Administrator, on the basis of volume of business
and/or such other factors as may be deemed equitable."
Article IV, Section 8 (d) provides that:
To cooperate with the Administrator in regulating the use of
the N. R. A. insignia solely by those employers who have assented
to and are complying with this Supplementary Code."
Article IV, Section 8 (g) provides that:
"To secure from members of the Industry an equitable and pro-
portionate payment of the reasonable expenses of maintaining the
Supplementary Code Authority and its activities."
The above sections of Article IV in effect provide for voluntary
contributions on the part of the members of the Industry. This
method of providing funds for the proper administration of the
Supplementary Code has been found to be unsatisfactory. The
present amendment is therefore proposed to create a legal obligation
on the part of the Industry members to pay their pro rata share of
the expenses of the Supplementary Code Authority.
FINDINGS
The Assistant Deputy Administrator, in his final report to The
National Industrial Recovery Board on said amendment of said
Code, having found as herein set forth and on the basis of all the
proceedings in this matter:
It finds that:
(a) The amendment of said Code and the Code as amended are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of
the National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of





3
obstructions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce
which tend to diminish the amount thereof, and all provide for the
general welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the
purpose of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and
maintaining united action of labor and management under ade-
quate governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair
competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization
of the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue
restriction of production (except as may be temporarily required),
by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural prod-
ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and re-
lieving unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by
otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the per-
tinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limi-
tation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said amendment on behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed to
and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have
not been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of
said amendment.
For these reasons, therefore, it has approved this amendment.
Respectfully,
NATIONAL INDUSTRIAL RECOTVRY BOARD,
By G. A. LYNCH, Administrative Officer.
OCTOmB 5, 1934.

(2) To submit to the Administrator for his approval, subject to
such notice and opportunity to be heard as he may deem necessary

purposes, and (9) an equitable basis upon which the funds necessary
to support such budget shall be contributed by members of the
Industry;
(3) After such budget and basis of contribution have been ap-
proved by the Administrator, to determine and obtain equitable con-
tribution as above set. forth by all members of the Industry, and to
that end, if necessary, to institute legal proceedings therefore in its
own name, or in the name of the Treasurer.
(B) Each member of the Industry shall pay his or its equitable
contribution to the expenses of the maintenance of the Supple-
mentary Code Authority, determined as hereinabove provided, and

Supplementary Code and contributing to the expenses of its adminis-
tration as hereinabove provided, (unless duly exempted from making

benefits of any of its voluntary activities or to make use of any
emblem or insignia of the National Recovery Administration.
(C) The Supplementary Code Authority shall neither incur nor
pay any obligation substantially in excess of the amount thereof as
estimated in its approved budget; and shall in no event exceed the
total amount contained in the approved budget, except upon ap-
proval of the Administrator; and no subsequent budget shall contain
(4)

mates except those which the Administrator shall have so approved.

section (e).
